Members of the European Parliament called on Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos to stop the sale of goods with Soviet symbols, Voice of America reports.
“27 members of the European Parliament, including representatives of the countries of the former Soviet bloc, demanded in an open letter to stop selling Amazon’s hammer and sickle products associated with the non-existent Soviet Union. The letter says, in particular, about T-shirts, suits, flags, and memorable souvenirs," as said in a message.
The letter of parliamentarians states that the total number of victims of the Soviet regime is estimated at 60 million, and another 10 million of the Soviet people were deported and exiled.
Earlier, the world's largest chain of stores, Walmart, also stopped selling clothes with the Soviet symbols at the request of the Lithuanian Ministry of Foreign Affairs.
